Remember Bill Clinton’s 1994 gun ban?

One year after signing the Brady Law, White House lobbying also played a role in the passage of the 1994 Crime Bill, which included the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act, commonly known as the Federal Assault Weapons Ban.

How about Obama’s threats about restricting guns?

The president signed executive orders calling for mandatory criminal background checks on gun-buyers and several other measures that were unpopular in Congress including a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. But he was unable to win passage of new laws and insisted authorities do more to enforce measures already on the books.

These two men should be gun salesmen! Gun sales hit record highs when these two presidents threatened our Second Amendment right to bear arms.

So it should come as no surprise when gun shows have record crowds like the one last weekend at the Florida State Fairgrounds…

Thousands of gun enthusiasts — more so than ever — flocked to the Florida State Fairgrounds for the Florida Gun Show event.

Organizers say they had a record number of people attend the event on Saturday, Feb. 24, almost 7,000, and expected more Sunday.

The manager for the Florida Gun Show, George Fernandez, says they’ve never seen such a big crowd.

The company canceled the show in Fort Lauderdale next month after the mayor asked them to show respect to the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting earlier this month.

With the heated debate over gun control staying front and center, Fernandez expressed concerns over proposed gun laws possibly restricting gun owners.

“Some of the people attending are afraid that future legislation will impact their gun ownership rights,” he says.
